Next applications deadline - 1 February
The Society of Authors has distributed grants worth more than £185,000 to 48 authors for works in progress. This is the second round of twice yearly grants that the Authors' Foundation and K Blundell Trust award to help authors with research or to enable them to make time to write their books.
The deadlines for applications to the SoA 2021 rounds of grants for work in progress are 1 February, for distribution in May, and 1 July, for distribution in October.
The SoA continues to distribute hardship grants from the Authors' Contingency Fund to authors affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
